There was a time, since I got my D5100, that it never left my grip. I took shots of almost everything I can lay my eyes on: food, Kids, events, things, places…
Then I got busy with work, and other stuff, and lost sight of it all.
Somewhere along the way, I got invited to join an exclusive group for Macro Photography.
My eyes popped.
I love how the minutest of things get so big, and so …
important all of a sudden!
I really was dying to try it, BUT when I asked around, a macro lens for a DSLR would cost me tons of money, which I am not prepared to part just yet.
Going back to this macro group, I kept on ogling at other people’s pictures, wishing they are mine.
All of a sudden, this young member started posting, and said that he only used a smartphone and a macro clip lens. Hey, wait… I’ve seen those in bazaars around town, but I have never believed they actually work!
But at the time of my great discovery, was the weekend when Hagupit was expected to wreck havoc in our country so, I had to wait for things to die down a bit.
So at the instant I was able to go out of the house, I immediately headed to where I first found these…
weeeh! What a joy to behold! I was so excited and was like a child, once again! But this time, instead of a DSLR, I have my smartphone in tow.
I am not that proud of my first shots though, for I could not find a single bug, spider, fly, ant … bah! So I have to content myself with plants and a few Chinese coins.
But only this time.
what do you think?
oh, go easy on me please. :) I am a beginner, and would really love to learn to take beautiful pix of you, guys. (if you remember my previous post about Strobes on Food)
Thanks for stopping by.
